    While travelng in the winter place a duraflame log in the trunk of your car. If you are traveling light-ie hunting in the mountains, cut off some chips and put them in a ziplock bag with a lighter. You will have a life saving fire if you need it. Also buy some one inch split rings and place them through the zipper clasp on your heavy coat. It makes zipping and unzipping much easier. Also the new browning shooting coat is a great deal for 100 bucks. good luck and happy hollidays!!

    Carry a large candle in your trunk with a butane lighter, and a packet with a survival blanket . One candle with the survival blanket will keep you cozy and your car warm, when your stuck in the snow.

    If you want to travel light, like hunting, you can carry one of the best emergency fire starters is simply a piece of 0000 steel wool and a "metal Match" (one of those metallic sticks that generate a hot spark when scratched with a knife blade or other steel edge item). The steel will actually burn with a high temperature. Wind will help fan the steel wool.

    Or you can store it in a jar with some mineral spirits and a alka-selter tablet size piece of the soaked steel wool will burn for several minutes and give you a good fire starter. Even if the paint thinner evaporates you still have the steel wool starter.
